    Talking This tire goes way too fast

    The old girl won't go anywhere near this, specially with me on her.



    I'd rather have a slower tire at a lower price.

    I've been there, in my youth. 180 indicated so at least 170 actual, Hyabusa. Sends chills down my spine thinking about it now.

    Have the tags removed before you get the tire. Not knowing in this case is better....

    Hell, I need a bike that can go 167mph just to get to work.

    One of Bill Cosby's best.

    Carrol Shelby did actually build a Cobra for Bill Cosby. It was one of two competition Cobras made street legal. It had dual Paxton superchargers on its 427 and really would do 200 mph. Cosby returned the car to Shelby after driving it only once.

    Didn't know that. Probably the basis of this routine, since he mentions "dual everything."

    And not a single four-letter word to be heard.

    The car Shelby built for Cosby was a copy of the one he had for himself. 900+ horsepower in 1966! They both had automatic transmissions. The car Cosby owned was destroyed in a crash that killed the guy driving it. Shelby's personal car sold a Barett Jackson for FIVE AND HALF MILLION DOLLARS!
